This PDF document prepared by Eno staff shows the text of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as most recently amended through 1982 (the last time anyone amended NEPA), including the changes proposed to be made by the debt ceiling bill (the “Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023”) as posted on the House website on May 28, 2023.

In this document, existing NEPA language that would be repealed by the debt ceiling bill is shown in strikethrough type and new language proposed to be added to NEPA by the debt ceiling bill is shown in boldface red type.

The debt limit bill would add a lot of new language to NEPA, but it isn’t all new policy. There is some crossover with existing NEPA implementing regulations, with the title 23 highway project environmental planning statute, and with title 41 of the FAST Act.
